"There is no society" is a dictum generally attributed to Margaret Thatcher.

It was recorded as "there is no such thing as society, there are individual men and women and then there are families" in an interview with Thatcher published in Woman's Own in October 1987.

It is often quoted in discussions on neoliberalism.

The dictum echoes the yoga guru Osho who said almost the same:

"In fact , there is no society , only individuals. Communism says there are no individuals, only society."--Yoga, the Alpha and the Omega (1976) by Osho, page 189.
